Vessel Enhancing Diffusion Filter

This paper describes vessel enhancing diffusion (VED) filters implemented
using the Insight Toolkit (ITK). The filters are implementation of the
VED algorithm developed by Manniesing et al . The VED algorithm follows a
multiscale approach to enhance vessels using anisotropic diffusion scheme guided
by vesselness measure at a pixel level. Vesselness is determined by geometrical
analysis of the Eigen system of the Hessian matrix. For this purpose, a smoothed version of the Frangi's
vesselness function is formulated. Experiments were conducted to evaluate the performance
of the VED filters in enhancing vessels in lung CT scan.

I wonder from the journal page here can it be found out whether the feature has been accepted since then?

I have sent a patch to the insight-users mailing list with an upgrade to compile with ITK v4.x
